Miss CMEN Queen Contest

Miss CMEN Queen 2006 Philip with runners upOne of the more fun events of the week is the selection and crowning of the Miss CMEN Queen.

Although the CMEN West Coast Gathering is an all nude event, participants who wish to express their more feminine side may elect to dress in women's accessories or dresses for the Friday afternoon social hour, which in 2009 had the theme "Queens for a Day" and for the evening Miss CMEN Queen contest.

For some, this is the first time to be dressed up in drag. Some believe it's a way of both being gay and expressing a contempt for clothes in general. The contest also allows people who are otherwise too shy to be a part of the on-stage fun.

Miss CMEN Queen 2004 with Miss CMEN Queen 2003 and runners upContestants dress in their "best dresses" and compete on-stage against each other based on their ensemble, responses to questions, speaking ability and personality. Many of the outfits are shared items that are available to everyone.

The Miss CMEN Queen 2009 was Friday D. from Honolulu, Hawaii. Jeff C. was the Mistress of Ceremonies once again.

The Miss CMEN Queen 2007 was Mike S. from Long Beach. Runners-up were Scott S. from Northridge and A Fluffy Bunny from New York.

The Miss CMEN Queen 2005 was Philip T. from Oklahoma City.

The Miss CMEN Queen 2004 winner was Paul from Nevada, runners up were Rob and Angel.

The Miss CMEN Queen 2003 was Richard from New Jersey, and Miss CMEN Queen 2001 was Hayo from Los Angeles.
